Acceptance of Electronic Transcripts (e-transcripts) for Enrollment Purposes
The College of New Jersey will accept electronic transcripts for enrollment purposes if the following criteria are met regarding the transcript:
1. The transcript is certified as official from a college using a third party agency for the certification process. Approved agencies include National Student Clearinghouse, Scrip-Safe International, Docufide, and NJ Transfer which is maintained by the New Jersey Statewide Transfer Initiative.
2. The transcript must be a PDF certified document (with the exception of NJ Transfer) that has no indication of tampering.
3. A college official must receive the transcript from an approved e-transcript service. TCNJ will not accept forwarded transcripts from unaffiliated college sources unless it has been pre-approved by the respective college officials in the Office of Records and Registration or Office of Graduate Studies. Currently, these are the only two administrative offices with authority to review for acceptability.
4. TCNJ has the right to refuse electronic transcripts or request additional information if there is a question about the authenticity of the document.
